. but hillary clinton was never just some cabinet secretary, right? well, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton. [ cheering and applause ] >> oh. >> secretary clinton still greeted like a rock star today at the agency she has led for the past four years. hillary clinton, of course, is not just somebody who came in a very close second to barack obama in trying to win the democratic party's presidential nomination, who then got a high-ranking cabinet post as a consolation prize. no, hillary clinton is really her own thing. her career in public life, in public office is unlike anybody else in american history. she went from being an accomplished lawyer in her early career to being the first lady of arkansas. she then became a very high profile first l
watching something frozen in time, full of amber and anger. it may be the first time clinton picked up seats, obama may be on the way to that. this may be good for democrats in return. it is not good for the country to be so frozen and reflexively anti-obama. >> steve kornacki, and ari melber. >>> coming up, steve colbert's sister is running for congress in south carolina. and in the rewrite tonight, the most memorable, quotable state-of-the-union address in history. and just how it affected me. that is coming up. at tyco integrated security, we consider ourselves business optimizers. how? by building custom security solutions that integrate video, access control, fire and intrusion protection. all backed up with world-class monitoring centers, thousands of qualified technicians, and a personal passion to help protect your business. when your business is optimized like that, there's no stopping you. we are tyco integrated security. and we are sharper. to prove febreze can keep this car fresh, we loaded it with fast food, sweaty hockey gear, and a smelly dog cage. and parked it at a mal
it probably should. this administration has shown itself to rely on drones and technology. hillary clinton mentioned this was a problem at the state department. we can bet it was a problem at the defense department. but this administration wants to put its faith there. we need manpower. in reality we still spend more than anyone else. but with iran heating up i don't think it's wise for us to be cutting back there. martha: how much of this is p.r. for lack of a better word in terms of alarming people. if you don't come to some sort of deal in washington you will see and hear more about losing presence in areas like the persian gulf? >> i think have much so. you have got republicans want to go pull back on sequestration. you have got the democrats wanting to. i think this is posturing for the white house trying to show republicans who are ostensibly the pro-defense party, we are going to make cutbacks in areas you don't want to cutback if the sequestration doesn't go through. martha: defense is one of the most important parts of the budget. if the see questionser kicks in is it an across th
. but what i can say is when i was offered this job by secretary clinton, the office had lost a competence of key players on capitol hill and others in the u.s. government. so i just produce a chance to start over anything probably a lot of what we are doing with the original conception. and i'm trying not to throw out the baby with the bathwater. probably nobody has said that since her grandmother died. so my feeling is they think the original intent was to be strategic and to have a policy influence. and then i think when it went through its middle stages a coordinator and never gain traction in the state department. so it then went into a kind of supplier of people, which i thought was too limited. so we've tried to recapture that want to be part of the conversation. we've been very fortunate to have the support for secretary clinton for the first year of our existing and now what we are finding that only been in a handful of meetings with secretary kerry, but in every one of the meanings, he has said, or bring the ideas. give me some out-of-the-box thinking. we've got to find another w
to states. a man was arrested at dallas -- at dulles airport. he had been close to the clintons administration and have worked with the bush administration. he was -- close to the clinton administration and worked with the bush demonstration. he is doing 23 years in prison. what would be the prospect the someone's gets back into the country and, -- someone gets back into the country and, from a political standpoint, they are all rest -- he starts talking about -- their arrest could be politically embarrassing. what if you have someone working closely with the president. we had a member of a known terrorist organization meeting in the white house last year it even though secretary napolitano could not answer that she even knew that was happening when it was in the papers. by the time she gets into the city and she says he was vetted 3 tons. there are things that could be proven so politically embarrassing that if somebody gets back into the lead to states, someone might look for a way to see that they never testify. we are talking hypothetically. i would like to know what of the
primary vote was more in sync than senator clinton was for the democratic party base, and she obviously senator santorum didn't have the formidable apparatus, he didn't have the body weight -- >> do you think if santorum had had perry's early money it's a different -- >> well, i think it's -- what do we know about the republican party? it's increasingly evangelical, southern and populist. what do we know about mitt romney? [laughter] i think that is a testament to his political skill, that he didn't begin this with a natural, geographical or ideological base. and yet he was able particularly in those debates through, i think, sheer political skill to -- taking positions that in many cases people disagreed with. like health care. but to convince the republican party that he had the qualities that they wanted to be their nominee. >> what would you gees seeing in your -- you gees seeing in your debates where every year it was the new whack-a-mole, conservative challenger. so we went from perry to herman cain next? herman cain was next, right? in that sort of moment, and then he blew up at
the president and secretary of state clinton know about a cable from ambassador chris steves warning the danconsulate, quote, could sustain an assault. he strongly believes that the obama administration simply did not support the fragile libyan government enough in the early days. that led to a fragile security situation that he believes that, at the end of the day, contributed to this attack. >> as you know, getting the answers to these questions, part of the issue's involved chuck hagel. by now, there was supposed to be a new defense secretary. leon panetta was supposed to be already back in california. but all that is set back. what's the latest? what's going on with panetta? he's staying put, i take it, for the time being? >> reporter: he is staying in office and running the pentagon till hagel is confirmed. but not necessarily running the pentagon from right here. he went back to his california home over the weekend. he will travel this week to brussels for a nato summit. hagel was supposed to go to that summit. and then the big question is, after that, somewhere in the saturday
. every budget summit that i had been a part of in the reagan years, first bush years, during the clinton administration, every budget summit we knew that defense had to play a role in trying to be able to control our deficits. soon after i became secretary, i was handed a number of $487 billion, almost half a trillion dollars that i was to cut out of the defense budget. it was contained in the budget control act, and i was required to be able to get that number of savings over the next 10 years. after a decade of blank check spending in the department of defense, it was important for us, the leaders of the department, chairman of the joint chiefs, the service chiefs, the service secretaries and myself who strongly believe that we had to meet this challenge of reducing the defense budget but we had to do it in a way that simply would not hallow out the force. we came out of every other period, every other war, we made the terrible mistake of hallowing out the force coming out of world war ii, coming out of korea, coming out of vietnam, coming out of the cold war. the attitude was, just cu
, but it's a very close to the clinton administration and worked with the bush administration and yet we find out he was involved in supporting terrorism internationally, surrogates arrested in noticing 23 years of prison. i'm asking what could be the prospect that somebody get back in the country and from a political standpoint, their arrest could potentially, like 79 if he started talking about the people he worked with on capitol hill, the people he met with then work with obviously would be very politically very same. what if you have hypothetically someone working closely with the president. we know we had a number of a known terrorist organization he did in the white house last year, even as secretary napolitano is sitting where you are could not answer she even if i was happening when it is in the papers. by the time she gets to the senate, she said the check was fÊted three times. there were things that could end up high politically proving if somebody gets back in the 90s state, someone might look for a way to see they never testify. we are talking hypothetically, but i wanted
, if the president had been willing to go back to bill clinton taxes on all. he was not. it is the height of hypocrisy to come in 30 days, actually in about one day, and begin talking about the next round of tax increases on a relatively limited group on our population, the 1% or 3%, and in fact start reducing their ability to have working capital for new oil exploration, for new natural gas exploration. the thing that the president just a few days ago standing in front of where you are today lauded as great, we are becoming oil self-sufficient, we are natural gas self-sufficient, we are able to move to cleaner fuels for our energy. but let's break something else down. my opponent, i keep saying opponent, he's my ranking member, but he is the loyal opposition here, he he talks about $100 billion. i think we need to break it down. that's $100 billion over 10 years. it's not even $10 billion in the first year. his $100 billion of sacrifice, many of those sacrifices won't even occur because people aren't going to necessarily be here for all 10 years, because next year or the year after this
. there is no jumping from this generation of energy production to the next overnight. even president clinton, even al gore when he was vice president talked about the transition that we have to go through. i see this pipeline as a transition. it's giving us oil from one of our closest, most dependable and friendliest of all allies, canada, as opposed to pushing us over the next five or ten years to continuing to do business with countries that do not share our values like the leadership, unfortunately, in venezuela today or the problems with countries in the northeast, even the saudis who we respect in some ways do not have the same value system as the united states. we would much rather -- at least my constituents would much rather deal with canada and mexico. not only are they better allies, but for louisiana, we like working in canada. it's a little closer to home. we like working in mexico. and since many of these workers on these rigs and in this business come from louisiana and texas, let me be crystal clear. my colleagues that are helping on this are absolutely right. the people of louisiana w
attractive. >> steve: hey, do you remember back in the day when bill clinton, he got in big trouble for essentially -- >> brian: went in the lincoln bedroom. >> steve: he did indeed. big donor, why don't you spend the night in the lincoln bedroom. i think by the conclusion of his administration, close to 800 people had spent the night in the lincoln bedroom. looks like they bought their way into the white house. well, fast forward to today and it looks to some as if with this administration, it is possible now to buy your way into the presence of the president of the united states. >> alisyn: there is an organization called organizing for action and there are some former staffers who now work on it. >> jim mussina. >> alisyn: and they are allowing people to pay $500,000 and if you pay $500,000 to this committee, you then get a quarterly meeting with the president, where you can hear his ideas or bat around ideas or whatever it is. and, you know, by the way, don't all administrations allow their top donors to have some sort of access to the president? >> steve: yeah, but not schedule
